THE SCHR. EMBLEM. - The Toronto Globe of the 7th says the steamer Banshee, while on her way from Cape Vincent on Sunday, fell in with the wreck of the ill fated schr Emblem, lately run into by the schooner America. -

The captain of the Banshee took the wreck in tow and brought her up to that port, where she is lying. She is, of course, considerably damaged, but her rigging, anchors chains, &c. are worth considerable.
